What's new

Color settings on TV can be set to different levels for each device, apparently! (1 Viewer)

Earlier this morning, when I set my 32 Inch Toshiba 720p Flatscreen TV with the Color turned all the way down to 0 so that I could view a Colorized episode of I DREAM OF JEANNIE in Black & White on my Toshiba DVD Recorder.

I also use the same TV as a Monitor for my PC Laptop. What I noticed is that when I switched back to my PC, the screen reverted back to Color without my having to make any readjustments. In turn, when I switched back to the DVD recorder, the 0 Color setting remained in place. I’m guessing this is probably not news for the more technically savvy among us, but it is to me!

One question that springs to mind is will the Color settings (Or any other settings) for my DVD Recorder device remain the same even if I shut it off, or does the power have to remain on? I should clarify that I did the calibration solely via the TV's settings, as opposed to anything that might exist on my DVD device!

CHEERS! :)

Some displays offer individual settings for each video input used. Others have global settings values for all the vide inputs. In other words, the settings selected for one input would be repeated for all the other inputs. Powering off an external video source device would not change the settings in the display.

Thanks very much for your helpful post, George! My display must be of the individual settings for each video input variety, then. This is also good to know in the event of a power out or power blink!

CHEERS! :)
